Digimon, by nature, are fighters. Judging by the lengthy combat sections that some of our members write, I get the feeling that a lot of our members are too. However, all of the theoretical combat experience in the world doesn't mean much without the chance to let loose and test it out. At the same time, the Digital World is full of creative designs and characters that a single member will never have the chance to explore each in depth without making an incredible amount of characters. The NPC rules exist for both of these reasons; they allow you to get some fighting in against a one-off character, run by either a staff member or your fellow members.
In order to request an NPC, one simply needs to go to our NPC Request topic. Whether inserting them into a previously existing thread or setting up a brand new thread focused on this NPC, this is where any specifics, questions, and requests are written. In order to make this request, use the following template as a guideline:
The name of your thread.
The URL of your thread.
You must include the Digimon's level. Any other details, from as general as Virus/Vaccine/Data to as specific as a particular Digimon type which you've had in mind, also go here. So do preferences such as whether you want the NPC to be a wild Digimon or human-associated, as well as if you want to allow or disallow custom Digimon.
Some members have preferences for how they'd like the encounter to begin. Do you want a more peaceful Digimon, a fair challenge, an ambush? Describe that here.
Is this a one-off combat thread, an egg hunt, a client for a job thread, or an important part of your character plot? Let us know the thread's role in your character's adventures.
NPC writing is open to members as well, but we acknowledge some feel more comfortable working with staff. If you would strongly prefer a staff-run NPC over a member one, specify that here.

Describe the stakes of your NPC request, as described below.
